On Thursday, Joy Behar insinuated that the inhabitants of East Palestine were receiving appropriate consequences, or at least the ones they had selected, in light of the catastrophic train derailment that took place approximately three weeks prior.
Following the derailment and crash, which involved multiple cars carrying hazardous materials, residents have expressed concern about the possibility of chemicals permeating the soil and fumes from ensuing fires contaminating the air and water supply for an extended period of time, potentially lasting several months or years.
During an episode of "The View" on ABC, Behar claimed that since former President Donald Trump advocated for deregulation in a vast array of industries and given that the residents of East Palestine voted overwhelmingly for Trump, they were simply experiencing the natural outcomes of their own actions.

During the discussion, co-host Sunny Hostin initially commended Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for visiting East Palestine only after nearly three weeks had passed since the train derailment. She asserted that it was clear he was engaged in genuine efforts rather than merely seeking a photo opportunity.
Subsequently, Hostin launched an attack on former President Trump, who arrived in East Palestine a day prior to Buttigieg with trucks filled with clean drinking water and supplies. She drew parallels between Trump's visit and his past act of throwing paper towels to the people in Puerto Rico, suggesting that it was merely a performative gesture. However, co-host Sara Haines countered this perspective by asserting that if the individuals required water, it should not matter who was providing it.
Behar shifted the focus of the conversation to criticize Republicans, contending that airlines were only secure due to government regulations and safety standards being mandatory. She posed the question, "Otherwise, where would we be?" and implied that without regulations, the likelihood of experiencing a catastrophic event would dramatically increase.
Alyssa Farah Griffin, a Republican co-host, noted that Norfolk Southern had advocated for less stringent regulations to both Democrats and Republicans and had also made substantial donations to President Joe Biden's campaign. Despite this, Behar remained steadfast in her position.
“That’s who you voted for, in that district,” Behar said while pointing her finger at the camera. “Donald Trump, who reduces all safety. He did, in those days.”
